Byron Kaverman got it all in from the button for 205,000 with AsAd, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the KhKc of Kirk Steele in the big blind.

The board came Qd9h8h10s8s, and Steele turned a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Kaverman won the pot with his pocket aces to double up in chips.

Byron Kaverman  –  430,000  (29 bb)
Kirk Steele  –  550,000  (37 bb)
